Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. If you’re like me, you started planning your costume back in August. But for those who may be slightly less rabid about their love for the spookiest of holidays, fear not! Our Halloween merchants have everything you’ll need to rock this Halloween in style. And the best part is, when you shop through us you’ll earn rewards for your school and yourself, to boot! Here are just a couple of essentials you’ll need to create that perfect character:

No great costume is complete without proper makeup. This makeup kit from Halloween Express comes with 6 makeup sticks, many different applicators, and full-color instructions on how to create three different faces.

Today is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day!

Image

I know that when the weather gets chillier and the days get shorter, I sometimes struggle to keep my health and exercise routine. But what better day to decide to get out there than National Women’s Health & Fitness Day? Check out the tips below to get started. Plus, our merchants have all the gear and gadgets you need to actually be excited for exercise time!

1)      Walk! Grab some comfortable sneakers, like these durable, ultra-lightweight Nike sneakers, on sale for $109.99 and get moving! If the weather’s nice, walk instead of taking public transit. If you find your energy draining after lunch, walk around the office.

2)      Develop a routine. Get into a schedule, and stick to it!  I’ve always found that going to the gym right after work works for me, as there is less of a chance of losing motivation by making a pit stop at home. Try getting a gym bag like this Nike duffle bag from Macy’s, so you’ll have your gear with you during the day. It’s water repellent, sturdy, and can also be used for weekend trips.

3)      Inhale the fresh air. No matter how busy you are, spending even five minutes outside breathing in the fresh air can have amazingly beneficial effects on mind and body. With the air getting chillier, be sure you have a warm jacket, like this North Face women‘s thermoball jacket, which is available in an array of vibrant colors and has the warmth of 600 fill-down.

The weather may be chillier, but it’s great for exercising! So get out there, and be sure to shop through K12Rewards to get everything you need, and earn cash for your school, to boot!

‘Tis the Season for Pumpkins and Spice!

Image

I always love the time of year when the seasons change, as each season offers something special to enjoy and appreciate. And what better way to take advantage of the fiery colors and cold, crisp air of fall than by decorating your home and yard to match? Luckily, K12Rewards merchants like Home Depot and Cost Plus Word Market make it easy to turn your house into a warm and inviting home for these cooler months.

No fall home is complete without an autumn wreath! Be sure to check out Home Depot for a vast assortment of seasonal wreathes, like this hand-crafted dried floral wreath in carmel sunset. It’s the perfect accent to any room, and it’ll be a proud accompaniment to your fall collection for years to come!

If small accents here and there are more your style, Cost Plus World Market offers a dizzying collection of trinkets to provide style and warmth to your home and put a smile on your face, like the pumpkin casserole baker, with a festive autumnal design and sturdy handles for easy serving. For an authentic taste of the season, don’t miss this pumpkin spice pancake mix, made with rich pumpkin and spice, and guaranteed to help you ease into your day with smiles and warmth.

Fall is one of the best times of year for food and home decorating, and we hope you’ll embrace it along with us. And the best part is, when you shop through K12Rewards, you’ll earn rewards for your school with every purchase you make!

Ease Back to School Jitters with These Essential Items

Image

If your child is starting a big year this year–perhaps beginning high school or going away to college for the first time–we know that no matter how much you prepare, first day jitters will always arise. To keep the nerves to a minimum, I’ll let you in on a little secret that has always worked for me: stay as organized as possible. With new teachers, friends, and class schedules, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and confused. And with the stress of making sure you have everything you need for that first day, purchasing helpful organization tools is often overlooked. But if you have these four simple tools for success, the days of forgetting your binder or bringing the wrong book to class will be ancient history.

1)      Agenda. Many people underestimate the importance of a hard copy appointment book, thinking they’ll be able to keep track of events in their head or in a blank notebook. But the calendar format of this weekly and monthly agenda is just what you need to visualize your busy new schedule, and it runs from July 2013-July 2014—perfect for the school year.

2)      Subject dividers. If you’re starting high school or college, dividers for your binder are cheap and absolutely essential. And you can use them however you want—to separate subjects, topics, ideas, etc. A perfect blend of organization and creativity!

3)      Staplers and staples. Don’t count on borrowing your friend’s or roommate’s, because they are probably thinking the same thing. No one wants to be the student who never has his report stapled together on due day, so be sure to invest in a quality stapler for ultimate academic success. 

4)      Message Board. Whether you put it in your locker or hang it in your dorm, message boards are a fun way to remember due dates, appointments, and events,  because you can personalize  them to suit your style. This fun board from Target is only $12.34, and you can use it for daily reminders, to hang photos, to leave notes for your friends—however you see fit!

With these simple organization tools, available from our merchants at great prices, you can spend more time on your studies and less time on stress!
